Albany -- A suspected hit and run driver, believed to have knocked a pickup truck off the Oglethorpe Bridge in Albany Monday night, has been caught.

20 year old Nicholas King was picked up at a South Albany house last night. Police say King was driving the Buick Electra that slammed into the rear of a pick up truck driven by 15 year old Jessica Martin.

Her truck careened off the Ogelthorpe Bridge, skidded down an embankment, across the river walk, and into a bridge abutment.

She was thrown out and remains hospitalized. Her father, who was riding with her, was not seriously hurt.

King is being held in the Dougherty County Jail.
